Calvin Drozdov of Winthrop was the happy winner of the sled and bear raffle for the children. Congratulations, Calvin, have fun with it.

After offering a $1-a-bag shopping opportunity for several days and then making everything free, The Christmas Sale room is getting very bare. Thank you, everyone who shopped with us and helped support our center. All the money from that sale and others goes into scholarships, maintenance and upkeep of the center and paying for utilities, along with helping someone in need. Our next big sale will be the Spring and Summer Sale.

We need paper grocery bags again — they go fast during the sales.

On Monday (Dec. 30) we will have the door prize gift basket drawing. You have to be eating lunch to put your name in.

At bingo last Thursday, we had a great turnout again with two winners in one game. Lucky people.

This will be my last senior news column, as I am retiring as social director and news writer. I think about 12 years is enough time for someone younger to jump in.

But this will give me more time to help in the rummage room and work on the Christmas Sale, and hopefully do some fun stuff this summer.

Susie Heller will be taking over the column and she is very creative and a lot of fun. Maybe she can come up with some new fresh ideas. It’s been fun working with her and showing her the ropes.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. Come and join me for lunch some day. Best wishes to all.
